Hockey fuels college's success
Things at Merrimack are changing fast.
The college is expected to enroll the largest freshman class in its history this September and expansions projects, including expanding the Volpe Athletic Complex, are popping up at every corner on the North Andover campus.
It is far from coincidence that all of the expansion, at least athletically, centers around the success from hockey.
The premiere sport — it's Merrimack's only Division 1 program — is at an all-time high. The man behind the bench is a big reason for that.
When hockey succeeds, the athletic department succeeds.
And yesterday, the Warriors fixed their foundation for the next eight years.
